NEW YORK (AP) -Five-time reigning Sprint Cup champion Jimmie Johnson can still recall in vivid detail his near-misses in 2004 and '05.
He says he forgets a lot of the good things, but remembers all the bad ones, even after all those titles. Johnson was in New York on Tuesday to shoot a TV interview two days after becoming the first driver in the seven-year history of the Chase for the Sprint Cup championship to overcome a points deficit in the season finale.
Hardly satisfied by his record four consecutive titles, Johnson hung in through an uneven season to somehow win yet again. It made the victory all that much sweeter, but also sent him into NASCAR's short offseason with more uncertainty than might be expected of a champion.
